At the Wimpole Aesthetic Centre, Dr Joshua Berkowitz is able to painlessly remove Pearly Penile Papules using an electro-surgical instrument or a CO2 laser, using local anaesthetic.
The electro-surgical instrument that Dr Berkowitz uses is called a hyfrecator; although we also offer treatment with a CO2 laser, it is more expensive and less effective than the hyfrecator so most patients opt for this treatment. This method is safe, efficacious and accurate. After the procedure the healing is quick and all is back to normal about a week later.
Pearly penile papules are normal anatomic structures of the penis. They occur in about 20% of the male population. They are small papules, about 1-2 mm in size, closely spaced circumferentially around the corona of the penis. The papules are usually skin coloured and domed and give the corona a cobblestone pattern. Large pearly papules may be mistaken for condylomata acuminata (warts) or molluscum contagious.
In themselves the papules are innocent and without any symptoms, but they often arouse some anxiety. Reassurance from a medical practitioner may be all that is needed but most patients would prefer to remove the papules if possible.
The pearly penile papule treatment ensures a completely papule-free penis and does not alter normal penis sensation and sensitivity.
We also have a website dedicated to the treatment and removal of Pearly Penile Papules.
How are Pearly Penile Papules removed?
At the Wimpole Aesthetic Centre, Dr Joshua Berkowitz is able to painlessly remove the papules under local anaesthetic. He uses an electro-surgical instrument known as a hyfrecator. They can also be removed using a CO2 laser, but it is more expensive and not always as effective so patients usually opt for the hyfrecator treatment.
Is Pearly Penile Papules Removal safe?
This method is safe, efficacious and accurate. Dr Berkowitz believes that his method of removing pearly penile papules is better than using cryo-cautery or a CO2 laser.
Is there any downtime after Pearly Penile Papules Removal?
After the procedure, the healing process is very quick and all is back to normal about a week later. You are advised to abstain from sex or masturbation for about ten days to ensure the skin on the penis recovers completely, but other normal activities can be resumed immediately.
How much does Pearly Penile Papules Removal Treatment cost?
Dr Joshua Berkowitz charges £895 for the consultation and procedure performed on the same day. This is a package cost. Should patients wish to only book a consultation, there is a fee of £250. If at a later date they choose to proceed with the treatment on a separate date, the treatment fee is £895.
“Thank you to all the staff at Wimpole Aesthetic Centre for their help, in particular Dr Berkowitz. Silly as it may sound, I feel like a new man following my pearly penile papules removal treatment. I wish I had done it years ago!”
Stephen, Brighton: Pearly Penile Papules Removal Patient
“I had suffered from Pearly Penile Papules for most of my adult life and had been embarrassed about them since they first appeared. I decided to look into the removal of the papules a couple of years ago but could not find anywhere specialising in this problem. When a friend recently informed me about Dr Berkowitz and the Wimpole Aesthetic Centre, I immediately booked an appointment. I had my consultation and treatment on the same day and the results have been perfect!”
Derek, London: Pearly Penile Papules Patient
“I had penile papules for years and it had become a real problem for me – more psychologically than anything else. I found it difficult to have self-confidence with new sexual partners and the more time went on, the worse I felt about the whole situation. Eventually, I decided to do something about it, and after months of personal research on the internet I found Dr Joshua Berkowitz at the Wimpole Aesthetic Centre in London. Following an initial telephone conversation, I visited the clinic for a pearly penile papule consultation and a few weeks later I underwent the procedure. It was a total success and within around 9 to 10 days of the procedure, any mild soreness had gone. I’m the happiest I’ve been for years since the removal of the penile papules and I would recommend it to any other man suffering or worrying about this problem. Finally, I feel that I can go back to having a normal sex life without being ashamed of my body.”
